A Blind Legend
by: DOWINO • 15.5K
Transforming your iOS or Android devices into a joystick, A Blind Legend has you guide Edward Blake, a very famous blind knight as you’re led by his daughter, Louise, through the High Castle Kingdom, a place filed with deadly enemies and a ton of traps. Unlike other hack-and-slash adventure games, A Blind Legend has an interesting twist. The screen is completely dark, and you’ll have to use headphones to guide you through the 3D soundscape. Make sure you pay attention to your surroundings, otherwise, you’re dead meat.
I can say A Blind Legend does offer a unique experience, where you will have to pay attention to what you listen to. The sound in this game is subtle but excellent and provides a great immerse experience. This game can be played by people who are blind.
A huge drawback in the immersive experience is the lives system, where you’ll have to purchase more lives to continue, and due to the lack of a UI, you can’t tell how many lives you actually have. The game’s controls should be much better.

This serious game is fully accessible to visually impaired people, and is aimed at anyone who’s eager for an original, immersive sensory experience through a ground-breaking video game. And because the player is the character, it will help raise public awareness of this kind of disability.
It is free to download and was co-created thanks to support from a community of fans who helped with the crowdfunding campaign (www.ulule.com/a-blind-legend) and in a co-production with France Culture, a Radio France station.
This hack-and-slash game, with a heroic-fantasy flavour, harnesses the innovative technology of binaural sound, which delivers a gripping 3D soundscape and brings characters and actions vividly to life around the player – as if they were actually in the game!
